New tower rises up at Canary Wharf

Posted on by in News

Requiring 9,500t of structural steelwork, the 27-storey One Bank Street is the latest steel-framed tower in London’s Canary Wharf.

The tower will offer 60,000m² of high-quality office space including three levels of state-of-the-art trading floors, a retail unit at ground level, a free-standing retail kiosk on South Dock Promenade, public realm, planting and landscaping, and basement car and cycle parking.

Designed by world renowned architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, One Bank Street will contribute to strengthening the role of Canary Wharf as a prime London office and employment location, providing capacity for an additional 5,837 full-time jobs.

Designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, the steel-framed structure sits atop a triple 16m-deep basement and gains its stability from a large centrally-positioned reinforced concrete core.

From the top of level three to level 12, a series of raking columns, facetted on each floor, creates a feature slope, which then continues upwards, less steeply to level 23, via cantilevering floors, where the elevation becomes vertical.

Working on behalf of Canary Wharf Contractors, William Hare is the project’s steelwork contractor.
